Disturbing video in #Kuwait. The woman crying in the video has just found out that her sister has been murdered by her harasser who tried to force her into marriage. As a revenge he killed her with cold blood just because she refused.#جريمه_صباح_السالم— Walid Alhathloul | وليد الهذلول (@WalidAlhathloul) April 20, 2021
Upon his recent release, the killer had tracked the lawyer's sister down before he kidnapped her and stabbed her to death.
Too many Middle East parents are still raising their sons to believe they are entitled to have this strong of a control towards women. never once it is mentioned in the qur’an that men are above women. never once it is mentioned that women should always follow what men say https://t.co/gN7MchPxAl— ramadhan kareem🌙🌟 (@talitharasha310) April 20, 2021
As soon as the news went viral online, social media users took to the hashtag #جريمة_صباح_السالم (Arabic: Sabah Al-Salem crime) to express shock and frustration over the crime, urging policymakers to tighten laws as soon as possible, so lives of women are better protected in the country.
